Default Moved back and US Girlfriend has Criminal Record

I have recently moved back to the UK from the US. I want my girlfriend to come and live with me and hopefully get married. She was involved in a minor traffic accident. She may get a conviction (record) due to this for leaving the scene. What do they check for when you apply for a visa to come from America? Does it depend on the type of conviction? i.e. Misdemeanor or Felony.

She will probably have to declare all criminal convictions from a court of law. Ask on http://www.immigrationboards.com for more information.
